The output of the Japanese diet

The only way to save the result — right out of the diet. Will help the following recommendations:

  1. Due to severe restrictions in the diet in the Japanese diet, marked slowing of the metabolism: the body goes into emergency mode, trying by all means to maintain health. The sharp increase in caloric intake will lead to the fact that all of this will be delayed by the body as a reserve.
  2. First you need to determine the daily intake of calories, considering the height, weight, age, level of physical activity. For this there are special formulas, or you can use the online calculator.
  3. Counting calorie diet you must maintain as accurately as possible, the method "by eye" will not work here. Have to weigh each meal, enter data into a special calculator or count on their own tables calorie products.
  4. You need to calculate your average caloric intake on a diet and add to it 100-200 calories. If the whole diet came out to 900 calories, when you exit you need to eat 1000-1100 calories for the first two weeks.
  5. Each week you should add 100 calories until, until you reach the daily rate calculated in the second paragraph.
  6. In parallel, it is recommended to keep records of the nutrients: proteins, fats, carbohydrates. This "building material" for the body that make up tissues and muscles. The lack of them can cause new problems. The optimal ratio to maintain weight loss following: protein — 25-35% of daily ration, fats — 25 to 35%, carbohydrates — 30-50%.
  7. Do not forget the rate of consumption of clean drinking water per day: at least 1.5-2 liters.
  8. Optimally, after the Japanese diet to pass a comprehensive examination, to establish whether there is a deficiency of any nutrients. Based on analysis, the specialist will prescribe a course of multivitamins.
  9. Food must be fractional, about 5-6 times a day. It is recommended to use the "plate rule": half is filled with healthy fresh vegetables, the remaining half is evenly distributed on the side and meat or fish.

Since the Japanese diet involves a categorical rejection of the carbohydrates that enter them will be very slowly. Out of the diet can last for 4-6 months. The fact that the restriction of simple carbohydrates, indeed, gives fast results, but this is due to the loss of fluid, lean mass and only a small portion of fat. You will need to enter an intense workout at least three times a week.

If we analyze the reviews to slimming, the effectiveness of the Japanese diet is not dependent on the power — and will power, endurance. To lose weight, of course, possible. The question remains — at what cost?

Opinion dietitian

As a doctor with years of experience can summarize and highlight the following advantages and disadvantages of the Japanese diet.

PROS:

+Reduction of carbohydrates (promotes active weight loss because the body fails to receive energy from the outside, and he is forced by the mundane things take energy from its own resources, that is to burn fat

+Strictly excluded salt (promotes the active weight loss due to removal of excess fluid from the body)

+Not expensive (max 2 t. RUB. for the entire diet)

+Duration 2 weeks (you can try to hold as short-term)

+Prolonged preservation of the result (if it is correct to finish it)

+The risk of allergic reaction is minimal, because all the menu consists of all traditional dishes/products

+Allowed yogurt and kefir (which will help prevent constipation)

+Fruit (except bananas and grapes. Best savory: Apple, pear, cherry)

+PFC present in the diet, therefore, great harm to the stomach will not be applied

+Weight loss for all diet is 5-8 kg(for those who need to get into your favorite dress before an important event)

Now let's consider the cons, which is important for weight reduction. Relying on his medical experience, positive arguments for a Japanese diet, I have not. Unable convincingly to explain: for a short time can reduce weight, of course, but fat tissue is not just unnecessary substance, but also an important endocrine organ. Rapid weight loss may cause hormonal change in the work process. Remember that adipose tissue you've eaten for years, and under her body to adjust to its work. Eliminating salt, the weight loss is due to the water it could cause dehydration. Abolition or drastic reduction of food of carbohydrates also affects our physical and mental health. Carbohydrates are primarily a source of energy, physical and mental work. In this diet, missing Breakfast as tea or coffee is a liquid, not food. Remember the rule of "eat Breakfast myself," it's true that the morning starts the whole body for the whole day. Under strict limitations and quick weight reduction, increased risks of gaining weight even with a vengeance after the diet. Here an important role is played by the hormone of ghrelin. Ghrelin is a murmur of hunger, calculated the maximum number of kilograms that you weigh, so negrodamus, you then begin to consume more food, the weight is typed. Also this diet is a lot of contraindications:

  • Not during pregnancy and lactation
  • You can't have people with a diagnosis of ulcers and gastritis
  • Not for people with liver disease and kidney
  • You can't have people with cardiac diseases, etc.

So my recommendation is before you decide to lose weight, please examine not only the advantages but also all the pitfalls that may be lurking, but nevertheless cause significant harm to your health.
